Vegetarian Mulligatawny

I made this in my Crock-Pot one raw rainy Sunday, and it was pure comfort food. The next day, it even tasted better!

Lentil Barley Soup

Thick enough to be called a stew, this hearty soup is easy to prepare and cooks in a single pot. Add more water or stock if you wish to have a thinner soup.

gingery-split-pea

Gingery Split Pea Soup

Chipotle chile provides the essential smokiness while the sliced ginger offers only a background hint of flavor. Cooked to a golden creaminess, the split peas are enhanced with sautéed, almost carmelized, vegetables and finished with a little miso, which contributes its distinctive richness.

White Bean Stew

This is a great recipe that tastes even better the next day. You can add as much garlic as 2 whole bulbs without it being overpowering–just be careful not to chop the cloves. For a stronger garlic taste, I mash a few of the cloves against the side of the pot as it cooks.

portabella-white-bean

Portabella and White Bean Cassoulet

A very hearty stew that, because of the portabella mushrooms, tastes downright meaty.

Red, Gold, Black And Green Chili

This is one of our favorite chili recipes, adapted slightly to be fatfree. In my opinion, it makes more than 4 servings– consider them 4 big servings!

Lebanese Vegetable Stew with Chickpeas

Here’s a recipe that’s perfect for both the Fuhrman and McDougall programs. I got it from the Veg-Recipes list, but I’ve adapted it to remove the olive oil that was used to sauté the onion. I also reduced the amount of allspice because I made it as it was listed (1/2 tsp) and it was a little overwhelming. Even with the full amount of allspice, it was very tasty–even my six-year-old liked it, and she claims not to like eggplant.

Lentil Chili 2

This chili is incredibly versatile. It freezes forever, it reheats as many times as you dare, you can have it with baked potatoes, in tortillas, under mashed potato.

    • Mushroom Seitan Roast
      Thanksgiving is this Thursday for most of us in the U.S., but believe it or not, I’ve already made Thanksgiving dinner twice. I’ve been determined to come up with a new main dish, a simple adaptation of my Seitan Stuffed with Walnuts, Dried Cranberries, and Mushrooms. It took me a couple of tries, but I […]

    • Coconut Kissed Pumpkin-Persimmon Pie with Millet Carob Crust
        (Or, “My, My, Me Oh My, I Love Pie”) Does anyone remember the John Travolta movie Michael about an angel who behaves most unlike an angel? Nora Ephron wrote the screen play. Pie is very important to the plot of that movie and its off-beat treatment of disillusion and faith. So if you’ve never seen […]
